Default Re: Joe Louis's resume is very poor

Before winning the HW World Title he beat-

Primo Carnera KO6, HW Champ and Hall of Famer

King Levinsky KO1, tough trial horse with a very good chin, he had never been stopped before and was only ever stopped 5 times in 117 fights.

Max Baer KO4, HW Champ and Hall of Famer

Paulino Uzcudon KO4, a good HW with a great chin who beat Tom Heeney, Harry Wills, and Max Baer among others. He gave plenty of good fighters tough nights like Max Schmeling x3, Primo Carnera x2, Tuffy Griffiths, Tommy Loughran, George Godfrey, and others. Louis was the only fighter who ever stopped him.

Charley Retzlaff KO1

Jack Sharkey KO3, HW Champ and Hall of Famer, worst beating Sharkey ever took

Al Ettore KO5

Bob Pastor W10.... and KO11 (in a HW World Title Defense)

so far so good
